Subway Chocolate Chip Cookies

Subway has several different cookies on their menu, including their classic chocolate chip cookie. Subway does not make their own dough, but uses frozen cookie dough from Otis Spunkmeyer's Sweet Discovery line of cookies. While the Otis Spunkmeyer dough is not sold directly to consumers, with this copycat Subway chocolate chip cookie recipe, you can make the cookies in your own kitchen.

This recipe also includes instructions for freezing the dough, so you can prepare individual cookies as needed.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients

  • 2 sticks margarine, at room temperature[2]
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 12-ounce package semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup tightly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 cups self-rising flour[3]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  1. Sift the flour and set it aside.[3]
  2. Cream together the sugars and margarine until fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract into the mixture one at a time, beating well after each added egg.
  4. Add in the sifted flour, 1/2 cup at a time, while beating the mixture.
  5. Refrigerate the dough for one hour in a covered bowl.
  1. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the cookies on the baking sheet, allowing 2 inches between each cookie. (At Subway they use a Silpat that has a spot marked for each cookie to ensure they are spaced properly)
  3. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until they just begin to brown. Do not overcook, as Subway's chocolate chip cookies are soft and chewy.
  4. Allow cookies to cool for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.[2]

Freezing Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

The cookies at Subway are baked from frozen dough. You can freeze the dough at home as well, which allows you to bake just a few cookies at a time. With frozen dough on hand in the freezer, you are never more than 20 minutes away from a fresh-baked cookie.

  1. Scoop a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball, and flatten slightly.
  2. Place the flattened balls onto a cookie sheet and freeze until solid. The frozen cookies can be baked immediately, or stored in an airtight container for up to a year.[2]
  3. Bake as above, increasing the baking time to 16-20 minutes.

  • If you don't have self-rising flour, add 4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt to 2 cups of all-purpose flour before mixing the flour into the batter.
  • Replacing the margarine with butter will produce a crisper cookie.
  • This chocolate chip recipe will produce soft chewy cookies similar to that sold by Subway. While this recipe will never be a really healthy cookie, if you are concerned about fat and calories, you can modify the ingredients to improve this nutritional value by substituting whole grain flour for half of the white flour, reducing the sugar by 1/2 cup, substituting 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce for the margarine, and replacing some of the chocolate chips with dried fruit.
  • By substituting different ingredients for the chocolate chips, you can create other popular Subway cookies. Use M&Ms instead of chocolate chips to make Subway's classic M&M cookie or throw in some white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts to create their beloved white chocolate macadamia nut cookie.
  • If you prefer a fluffier cookie, add 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder into the dry ingredients.
  • Make your chocolate chip cookies stand out from the others by adding a cup of chopped walnuts.
  • Don't feel like you have to stick with semi-sweet chocolate morsels. Feel free to go nuts and opt for white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, or whatever other sweetened chips you fancy.
